Would you please tell me what I am doing wrong?

I am presently running Android 5.0.1 Lollipop on my A10-70F.

Thank you.

Turn off Signature Verification in the TWRP Settings.
You also need to FORMAT data Twice not just a normal wipe. Note: It will wipe your internal_sd card Pictures Music everything!!
PS: Please remove the actual link address to the ROM in your post. (bot's maybe watching)

Before Flashing:
  • If your data partition is encrypted you will need to wipe/Format it TWICE in TWRP then rebooting to recovery before flashing.
    Remember this will wipe your internal sd_card Pictures, Music, etc, etc and also the update.zip if you placed it there prior to doing the format.
    NOTE due to feedback received: When formatting data please remove the USB cable then format it TWICE.
    The reason for this is still not clear but it's confirmed to prevent any issues
  • If your already running MM without encrypted data then a standard TWRP factory wipe is fine.
    NOTE: It seems for best results do a full FULL data wipe twice as described above.
  • I am not sure if this update is enough to Upgrade from 5.0 LP to 6.0 MM but I think it should be in theory.
    I would suggest waiting for a experienced user to try it first and report back.

Whats Different bigrammy??
  • boot.logo Now Black instead of the White burning out your eyeballs one.
  • bootanimation. Now Black Pixel animation.
  • Default wallpapers Desktop and lockscreen Now Pixel Blue (no more boats)
  • Pixel Launcher
  • Assistant enabled
  • Sony id enabled (Allows you to install some Sony app's from the play store like keyboard)
  • Ported Sony Music Album and Video directly from my Sony C4 mt6752 device.
  • Launching the Camera should clear the Headphones after use.
  • These are Just to name a few but has lots of other minor mods I have forgotten about.

Installing and things to Note:
  • This is a TWRP Flashable update in case it's not clear.
  • MM TWRP is included in the update.zip so those coming from LP will not have any problems booting to recovery after the update.
    I am unsure if this will overwrite any existing TWRP folders on your sd_cards so to be safe PLEASE rename them oriTWRP before you reboot to recovery for the first time after the update. This applies to ALL.
  • Please flash the entire update or I/we will not know whats causing the problems should there be any.
  • First time boot takes 10 minutes so do not panic. As soon you see the boot animation go make a cup of coffee and wait.
    It will boot guaranteed if you see the bootanimation.
    The reason it seems to take so long is that the boot animation continues until fully booted so you do not see the usual dialog box "updating app 1 of xxx" etc
  • Ensure you update Google Play Services via the playstore (Launching Music will immediately prompt you to do this and you can tap on the alert to be taken to the update.)
  • Update all other app's listed in playstore/my apps
  • Note app's like trackid will only display in portrait as our device res is not officially supported
  • Credit to HootanParsa for the Awesome file explorer his thread is HERE Please leave your thanks there too.
  • Lastly But Most important please LEAVE SOME FEEDBACK
    I know it will not be to everyone's tastes so feel free to mod add remove install what you like.

Hello,

has anyone tried actually to install this custom ROM? I bought Lenovo A10-70F few days ago and I'm really frustrated about all the Lollipop 5.0.1 limitations (SD card in particular). I would like to try this ROM but I am not sure if it is safe enough.

If you are new to this Tablet and indeed Mediatek SoC then please familiarise yourself with SPFlashtool and ensure you have it all fully working. (Go to the Main Thread and use google for that. You will be ignored if you ask about it Here...)
Only when you are comfortable using the above would I recommend flashing any Custom ROM's.
The above tool and factory firmware will easily restore your tablet to "as new" should anything go wrong flashing custom ROM's.
Also read the thread and you will soon see whom installed it and kindly reported back. You may even learn a little along the way.

I'm a fool, I've realised there were more pages in this thread AFTER I sent that message. (I assumed A10-70F is considered obsolete nowadays). I've installed MM 6.0 stock and it works perfectly. Now I have more control over my SD card , but for some reason I still cannot transfer large files from my PC to Tablet while in USB nor directly SD through adapter to PC. Only way is to either download stuff through torrent app or google drive. Big thanks for all your hard work making A10-70 better than it was before. Cheers
Just one noob question - Is it important/obligatory to install kernel ?

No problem.
The tablet is far from obsolete.
Try formatting your sdcard to NTFS exFat or some other File System that supports large files. I cant test any of these as the wife's stuff is on there and not got a spare one to test out what works and what does not. Here explains the various fs's

Just one noob question - Is it important/obligatory to install kernel ?

In addition to file system as @bigrammy said (fat is limited to 4GB files), I would look for unreliable usb hardware. Use a short, high quality cable. On desktop computers, use the USB ports at the back, as they are connected directly to the motherboard.

When I try to transfer files (~4GB) from PC to Lenovo Tablet through USB cable computer gives me an error saying that I cannot transfer such large files. Also I cannot move/copy large files from internal memory to SD card. Formating SD card as internal memory won't work on MM as well. I can download larger files to SD card through torrent app but it's very limiting.

No it doesn't, but not a big issue for me as I don't use headphones with this tablet.

I have no idea what you are talking about
If you are rooted on stock MM then just leave it alone.
As for your SD_Card issue I refer you to my previous answer and the link (writing in brown colour) I gave you and I quote from there "Individual files on a FAT32 drive can’t be over 4 GB in size—that’s the maximum." See their website for detailed Info of each File System type and it's pro's and con's......
